What to expect

Riding through the pedestrian areas of the old town center of Palermo and along the cycle lanes that connect it with the outskirts, you will discover how the city's changing 'inside and outside', healing from the wounds inflicted by the violence of the mafia which reached its peak with the massacres of 1992.

This tour is a tribute to the memory of heroes like the prosecutors Falcone and Borsellino, whose murders pushed the Sicilian people to react against the mafia and inspired collective action of a whole generation of anti-mafia campaigners. Young people today are still committed to improving society and making change, volunteering in grass-roots movements like Libera and Addiopizzo.

During the tour, you'll ride along the alleys of Palermo, by the docks of the harbor and among the city's suburbs, well connected to the center through cycle paths. Learn more about Falcone e Borsellino's importance and about the grass-roots anti-mafia movement 'Addiopizzo' and its ethical consumerism campaign supporting those who refuse to pay protection money. Stop along the way to enjoy a handmade and award-winning gelato.
